Melbourne, Australia is internationally known for its street art and its trams. Melbourne Street Art 86 imagines Melbourne's 86 tram route as though it were a giant open air gallery of street art with its own regular tram service. The pages in the dark blue side bar below have photos of street art by the suburbs the tram passes through. Locations are noted by tram stop, street location and also on maps of the area that can be downloaded or printed. Other Melbourne suburbs rich in street art are also featured.

Northcote updates, quick gallery & deleted scenes
The Northcote map has now been added to the NORTHCOTE - High Street page. This was the last of the suburb page maps remaining to be added to the site. However... the Northcote mapping is not yet complete.
Northcote has a lot of street art in a small area; I suspect it has the highest concentration of street art in the city. It was not possible to fit all the locations on one map. This map is the first of a series of four of the area, with the orange shaded zones being the locations that will be covered in more detail by maps two, three and four - though these will not be as complex as the example above. I am still working on these.
Depending on other demands on my time, I may do a temporary version of a Northcote guide using only the map locations above. The eventual finished guide will have all four maps and sub locations for some of the 14 main ones used in the above.
There has also been some replacements of photographs on the Northcote page and a few additions.
I have added a quick gallery to the Site guide page (now called Site guide and quick gallery) with a selection of about 10 highlights of photos of street art from each suburb page. This has existed in draft form for a while, but I hadn't found a sequence of images that seemed quite right until now.
This is a new page, it is the last addition to the site. As I publish blog posts with examples of street art that didn't make it to the main suburb pages I will be adding these to the STREET ART - Deleted scenes page, to make it possible to see all the 'deleted' street art in suburb order in one location, without wading through blog posts to find them.
